Three Nights in ’73

This go ’round we’re looking back forty-six years to March, 1973. The Grateful Dead played three shows at the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial on March 15, 16, & 19. These kicked off a short East Coast tour spanning from Boston to Baltimore and really gave them a chance to stretch the fairly new Wake of The Flood material debuted in February of that year.

There’s not a lot of fooling around on this episode. I run down some highlights from the shows and then play two sets of great tunes. So, sit down or stand up and prepare to get down to some good old Grateful Dead!

As mentioned on the show, for a limited time and at reduced prices, you can still grab t-shirts, mugs (travel & otherwise), and stickers over on the Redbubble site. Get them while you can!
